Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


Follow your hosts on a trek into Japanese history, from ancient Japan to the end of the Samurai and all points in between - culture, warfare, literature, and interviews. Simply stated, our mission is to bridge the gap between the popular and the academic, and to bring the world of academic Japanese history accessible to a wider audience through discussion of topics and authors in an informative but informal manner. We encourage those listeners who want to know more to seek out works by the historians and authors we reference and interview, and to contribute to the conversation. Conversely, we hope scholars can view us as a way to reach a broader, non-specialist audience and raise the bar for general understandings of Japanese history.

In February, 2013 the University of Hawaii Art Gallery held an exhibit entitled "Picturing the Ryukyus: Images of Okinawa in Japanese Artworks from the UH Sakamaki/Hawley Collection", which included a symposium titled "Interpreting Parades and Processions of Edo Japan". Last week we heard the audio of Travis's presentation. This episode and next episode, travis talks about both his presentation and the overall symposium. This is part one of two.

The presentations and papers from February are now available online:
